Sydney workshop: Is your organization change-ready?

On the morning of Tuesday 09 September I’ll be presenting a half-day workshop on communications and change in Sydney at Melcrum’s 5th annual Strategic Communications Management Summit.

Is your organization change-ready?

A change initiative - whether a merger, acquisition, restructure, change in leadership or other shift in strategy - is typically undertaken for practical business reasons. A change that makes sense on paper, however, can fail to deliver the expected value if the change process is not supported with tangible actions in the short term.

People issues once were considered “soft” issues, but organizations have learned there are hard consequences to mismanaging people issues during a change, including employee disengagement, dropped productivity, decreased revenue and loss of competitive advantage.

In this informative and interactive workshop you will learn how to use communications as part of a holistic strategy to shape organisational culture and mitigate the people risks in the change process.

Using client examples, I will describe an approach to culture change that features proven models and offers practical tools to identify, prioritize and address these risks. Participants will leave the workshop with new insights on how to help their organizations to be “change-ready”.
